Next week I’m going to do a series of Mother’s Day posts so we won’t have a Wedding Wednesday – so this is your lucky week with 2 wedding related posts!
I love a bachelorette party because usually the guest list is smaller and you can plan fun activities. At a bridal shower you’ve got all of your relatives there and they tend to be pretty subdued. So, even though we (our family are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints – commonly known as Mormons) don’t drink alcohol, don’t go to male review clubs and don’t gamble with actual money – that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a REALLY fun night with your girlfriends! It’s a great break, for the bride especially, to get away from the stress of planning the wedding. My creative niece Alix recently hosted a 1920’s poker themed bachelorette party for her friend and I want to share the super cute details with you. You can also read her first hand account here.
I LOVE that they named it The Dirty Mug and the strung lights to give it a back alley touch.
Each guest had a cute place card holder with a photo from the prohibition era – so creative!
Of course they had poker snacks – including pearl sixlets, bubble gum cigars (found at PartyLand) and chex mix.
Guests dressed up in 1920’s era clothes to add to the fun! (I want to be in this group of friends, I LOVE dressing up!)
My nieces dapper husband played bartender serving the girls mocktails (alcohol free cocktails) and then sat in as the dealer for poker.
Its a simple party to throw together but a night they will always remember! Pick up some cards, a few snacks and drinks and plan your own poker night! (I would have to play Old Maid and Uno since I have no idea how to play poker) 🙂
